Tim Hortons Rescinds Sponsorship of NOM Event

Tim Hortons has rescinded their sponsorship of a National Organization for Marriage event in Providence, Rhode Island…good news that they are not supporting anti-LGBT events, homophobia, and hatred!  Unfortunately, their logo may already be printed on the event materials.Tim Hortons

From the Tim Hortons website:

Tim Hortons responds to inquiries about Rhode Island event sponsorship

Recently, Tim Hortons was approached in Rhode Island to provide free coffee and products for a local event, as we do thousands of times a year across Canada and the United States.

For 45 years, Tim Hortons and its store owners have practiced a philosophy of giving back to the communities in which we operate. As a company, our primary focus is on helping children and supporting fundraising events for non-profit organizations and registered charities.

For this reason, Tim Hortons has not sponsored those representing religious groups, political affiliates or lobby groups.

It has come to our attention that the Rhode Island event organizer and purpose of the event fall outside of our sponsorship guidelines. As such, Tim Hortons can not provide support at the event.

Tim Hortons and its store owners have always welcomed all families and communities to its restaurants and will continue to do so. We apologize for any misunderstanding or inconvenience this may have caused.

  1. Thank You Tim Hortons!! You did the right thing to welcome ALL families! If there were any Tim Hortons in my neck of the woods, I would stop by and patronize your business for this reason. Now What is Tim Hortons? Don’t laugh I have facebook friends all over this country and will let them know to visit Tim Hortons and enjoy their coffee?
